All this talk fired me up to finally re-install my ham radio
I am quite rusty at this and I did not have a backstay antenna
on my previous boat installation
- what is the recommended min/max length for -primarily- use with maritime mobile?
Also, during the counterpoise
discussion, there was mention of adding a capacitor to block DC - I have a cast iron keel
; seems as if this ought to be suitable for a good ground?.. What type of capacitor are we talking about and would someone describe the connection (perhaps a simple diagram?)
Thanks in advance and fair winds to all!
